... ive realised 212's are really what i love best.

+1^^

A 212 really does seem to nail it!

If you can handle the weight, this (I absolutely love the sound that I get out of mine):

Yup I know exactly what you mean. Mine is part of my Mesa M6 combo and whilst it is my favourite rig in terms of glorious sound, at 80lbs it's definitely staying put in my bass-ment!

i am seriously thinking of getting rid of my Vanderkley 1x15 though. As much as i love it i still miss the sound of a 212 cab.

I'd have to agree with you there. For me in terms of portable 'one cab' solutions, my order of preference would be for sound quality and punch alone:

1) 212

2) 210

3) 112

4) 115

I've settled on a VK210LNT as my 'compromise' on sound quality, punch, power, price and weight. Very happy with it so far...

Ive only ever had one cab that had 10's in it, the BF Retro 210. I have played though a few others though and have always liked what i hear/feel.

I noticed the other night how uncompressed my tone was. Same amp settings etc, but the upper strings were much more prominent than when i use my 1x15.

I think id really get on with the VK210LNT though, although id love to try one of the Vanderkley 212's (my guitarist has one but he wont bring it along for me to try lol).

If my gigging future looked more promising id sort out a new cab, but as its all up in the air at the moment i dont have much enthusiasm for changing cabs.

I have a Barefaced Super Twin and it doesn't get out of 1st gear for an average pub / club gig.  These days, a 2 X 12 will cover most scenarios.  If you need to go louder, you'd probably be damaging your hearing.

      Based in Herts, but can meet / deliver around London and home counties/Herts Beds and Bucks.  I also head to the South west and Herefordshire regularly.  I can box up for posting, but you will need to organise your own courier.  I am open to trades on 112 bass cabs - will do a Job lot for £480 for both or will split at represented prices for each (These prices are as low as I can go)
      Epifani UL 212 - £350
      it is in near perfect condition and has a beautiful tone.  Lovely deep lows and huge amounts of power.  It can sit nicely between the vintage and the hifi sounds when on completely flat response on the EQ.  I don't want to sell it, but it is far bigger and more powerful than I need, really needs to be gigged properly and played by a decent player!  Pubs and so on won't do this sucker justice and neither will my limited capability.
      The Epifani is 4 ohms and 700 watts - front ported, weights ~23kg.
      Specs;
      CONFIGURATION
      2 x 12″ 350W Epifani Aluminum-frame Neo Drivers

      Ashdown 408 - £150
      I bought this cab on a whim and intended to fix it up a bit, but that project won't happen.  The cab contains the Celestion TF0818 drivers which are more middy than anything else.  It is an 8 ohm 400 watt cab of about 20kg.  I have a set of 4 FaitelPro 8fe-200 driver for the cab to make it into a 520 watt 4 ohm cabinet - I will include these drivers in the sale.
      Weight (kg): 20
      H x W x D (mm): 603 x 465 x 330

      NOW ONLY £395 each for a quick sale - sorry I can't figure out how to amend the headline price!
      Hi I have for sale a pair of brilliant Orange OBC212 600w bass speakers purchased the less than 6 months ago. Both cabs are pretty much mint, with no scratches or tears and come with heavy duty branded slip covers - I look after my gear and these have literally seen the light of day outside my smoke and pet-free home studio twice (and once was to take the pictures!).
      One cab is orange and the other black (cuz I iz funky!). The new price for these was around £650 each and I'm only selling due to unemployment - why not try a sensible offer, I might be tempted? I originally had an excellent OB1-500 head in this listing but it has now been sold.
      Orange basketweave OBC212 600w 8-ohm isobaric cab 2x12 £395
      Black basketweave OBC212 600w 8-ohm isobaric cab  £395
      Collection from Salisbury SP1 please.

      Selling to fund a Berg cab.

      03/8/2018 - Sold at £350 (+ shipping if applicable)
      Now that I have a RS112 just purchased from Jumanji on here, my hardly used (probably gigged no more than 3 or 4 times) RS212 is for sale.
      Bought new from Bass Direct along with an RH750 and RS210, I have favoured the RS210 for smaller gigs, and the RS212 only came out 3 or 4 times.
      I'm downsizing again, so will be using combinations of the RS210 and/or the RS112 in future.
      I still have the original box and all packaging, and a TC padded cover to include with the RS212.
      This is an 8 Ohm cabinet, but up to three mix and match RS cabinets can be used with a TC head.
      It's the newer, improved finish with speakon connectors only.
      More information here :- 
      https://www.tcelectronic.com/Categories/Tcelectronic/Bass/Cabinets/RS212/p/P0CJH
      Cash on collection preferred (Western suburbs of Norwich) or I could courier this one as it's relatively light and I have all packaging - 48-hour insured courier would be in the region of £25 extra.
      The lowest in stock online price I can find for this new is £499 plus £49 for the cover so there's a saving of £148 [now £198 with price reduction] to be had here, for an as-new cab..... 😉
      Please contact me by direct message on Basschat in the first instance.
